csgo is going f2p since forever
Of course it is. The number of cs.go players is ridiculous, even in streams. They must earn some money someway ... like selling custom weapon skins, some kind of weird armor, etc, something like BF4Free, or League of Legends.
The only VALVe's F2P game after TF2, coming soon is Counter-Strike : Tactical Intervention, based on the Source-Engine2
Ofcourse its going f2p.
The game is dieing on the casual side of the game, which is probably the most important side, since the competitive scene always comes from the casual side.
No new casual players = no new pro players = end of the scene sooner or later.
But going f2p isn't all that bad for CS:GO, sure it will bring in more cheaters, but if Valve gives the premium members (people that bought the game) their own seperate competitive servers, then those cheaters will be playing on pubs which have admins to kick them off.
If they just give the casuals items to buy like season passes, or even weapon skins for use on casual servers (with a cvar to disable these on your server) and keep the premium members away from these f2p users (maybe finally give the paying players their 128 ticks), then who cares?
It's only gonna make the game and scene grow, meaning more players = more viewers = more sponsors = bigger tournaments.
I'd say go f2p with GO asap, save it before its dead.
and what with people that paid for game? :D
LOL CS:GO can't be f2p. No need to explain.
I don't think so, but even it it does they should leave all the skins and all this purchasable stuff out of competitive mode, and let people use it in casual modes, which I think would be cool to have. Like that white SAS model and ofcourse 128 MM servers for "subscribed" players.
valve need organize some big touneys for csgo and make some updates
They cant do it unless they give back the money to the people who bought the game.
FUCK Valve give some serious updates not this shit
end of updates, csgo is full, VALVEFUCK
People keep complaining about cheaters, how it is ever gonna be f2p...
yeah it should go f2p. and the cheaters will rise at 75%
